Great location and very welcoming Inn Keeper

4.4 on January 07, 2013

I have stayed at the Hargrave House on a number of occasions and have found the innkeeper, Lorna Woodson, to be very welcoming., warm and accomodating. In fact, I think she is one of it's best assets. The location could not be any better...central in Doylestown and close to shops and wonderful diverse restaurants, which can more than meet the requirements of any foodie. I agree that the interior would benefit from a freshening but the Inn is clean and warm and perfectly comfortable. I know it is my first choice when traveling to Doylestown.

Worth checking out!

Hargrave House is a wonderful place to stay. First and foremost, Lorna Woodson, the innkeeper is incredibly attentive and truly cares about every guest. She will make you virtually anything that you want for breakfast and actually cares about your health! The bedrooms are large and have big comfortable beds with lots of pillows. The TVs could be a little larger but otherwise, I can't imagine anyone not being very pleased with their choice to stay here.

Beautiful room, wonderful service

4.8 on August 30, 2009

We were thoroughly impressed with this inn in the heart of Doylestown. The bed was so comfortable and the sheets were so soft, we had the best night's sleep of our entire vacation! The deep, jetted tub was relaxing and deceivingly well-placed, since my husband could watch baseball on the flat screen TV while soaking in it. The location is perfect, since all the shops and restaurants in Doylestown are easily accessible on foot. Lorna is a perfect hostess, and the breakfast of fresh fruit, eggs and bacon was a lovely conclusion to our too-short stay. We would highly recommend this inn as a great place for a weekend getaway!

Lovely house and innkeeper

The inn was lovely and clean. The owner was very accommodating with our early check-in. Breakfast was delicious where she chatted with us for a bit but also let us eat alone for a while as well. A little pricey, but great stay.

Charming Bucks County Feel

Lorna and the staff do a remarkable job! They are warm and friendly and bend over backwards for their guests. The homemade breakfast is tasty and worth waking up early! The B&B lacks luxurious decor and needs to be updated. The 1980's soaking tubs should be removed and in their place create a sitting area in each room. The room we were in the second night didn't even have a clock.
